Honest-to-Goodness True Fishing Stories.

Fishermen tend to be full of shit.

I can tell you this from first-hand experience.

We’ll talk about the one that got away.

Or we’ll only show you photos of the big ones we caught, while holding the fish in front of the camera lens to make it look huge.

We’ve all done that.

But what we don’t tell you,  are the countless times we’ve gone out for the entire day, and gotten skunked.

And what you don’t see, are the dozens and lame-ass minnows we get,  that we throw back and don’t talk about.

But I think it’s time to come clean.

To break precedent, I’ve decdided to showing of my less-than-spectacular catches.

And these photos are true.

Honest to God.

Another trophy.    (And come to think about it, this wasn’t the smallest pike I got, either)

Trout fail.   This huge monster is the net result of driving 90 minutes each way, and paddling the entire day.

At least I didn’t’ get skunked, though.

Okay…I can’t lie.  My fishing guide caught this one.   He wins.

Anyone who’s gone after perch, knows how easy they are to catch.

And how sad it is…when you can’t even got one large enough for the frying pan…

This one’s the best.   I was casting for trout, and I got a clam.

    No idea??! (Go figure!) I was casting a treble-hook lure in a river, and got a CLAM.

    And so did my guide, just a few minutes earlier.
